We’re excited to kick off YP Week 2018 with Angel Rich! Rich is an entrepreneur, author and innovator whose drive and creative thinking has earned her the title Wealth Pioneer. Named the “Next Steve Jobs” by Forbes, Rich won the Goldman Sachs Portfolio Challenge, sold her first marketing plan to Prudential and authored the first ever African American Financial Experience study - all by age 30.
Credit Stacker, Rich’s app, has been named the best financial literacy product in the country by The White House, Department of Education, and JP Morgan Chase. This match-three game, like Candy Crush, allows users to swap colored pieces representing the 5 major credit types, to pay off debt, achieve a high credit score, and learn from the multiple-choice questions. CreditStacker, is the only mobile credit game in the world on Google Play and iOS, available for free in 60 countries and 21 languages.
Rich founded The Wealth Factory with a mission to provide equal access to financial literacy across the world. Today her company designs Wealthy Life financial literacy education technology games. The online games are supported by a financial curriculum, programming and activities, walking people from birth to retirement in 12 subjects. The Wealth Factory’s goal is to transform financial marketing to financial education while reducing poverty, increasing financially savvy citizens, raising financial product ownership and building better financial ecosystems.
